Things age, surely it hasn’t escaped your notice? I wouldn’t have thought you would miss it. Take your eye off something for a moment, and suddenly the new becomes old and devalued. Who is to blame for this? Imagine that the process is controlled by small creatures living all around us, in the hidden places of this world. It’s a lot of work and responsibility! Our hero, Překlep, specializes in publishing mistakes and one day realizes that those he sees aren’t happy with broken or old things and embarks on a journey to stop the ravages of time. Will he stop ageing? And who gets the Crystal prize? What role does a speaking dung beetle have to play? The answers can all be found within this epic children book.
